The Rich Stadium July 4th, 1989 performance was launched on the "Truckin Up To Buffalo" view from the vault DVD.

Rich Stadium is a huge venue, were you standing on the floor or well seated, and properly tuned?

To get this show, you'd need to view the DVD, Garcia was totally on his game, singing from the soul, dancin with enthusiasm, looking so healthy and fit. It's the perfect memory to keep in your mind.

You may not like the song selection, but the performance and audio quality are as a tight as a nuns a$$#@!&.

I agree that watching the dvd would certainly change one's perception of how interactive the band was that day.

But visually is only one way to digest a show. X factor - to me {again imho} just was not one to make this show the most downloaded show of all time (pretty close, at least).

I guess I was just perplexed that a show (and you are correct with the "Truckin' up to Buffalo" release) that was "good" would be gobbled up by so many.

Not sure who, but someone posted that he/she lived nearby and that the scene was killer in the 'woods'.

I can tell you that I was not on the floor. This was one of the few "big arena" shows I saw. And I had seen the boys up close several times in the early and mid 80's. Did not want to deal with 80k behind me.

To each their own. And I respect that absolutely.

Thanks for the feedback (pun intended!!)
